SOLIDWORKS and the Pinewood Derby

CATI's monthly contribution to the SOLIDWORKS Blog was posted earlier this week. This month's challenge was to help my son with his first Pinewood Derby car for Cub Scouts. Conner only had only one requirement and that was to make the car look "cool". So what to design for a 7 year old that is cool and that easily narrowed it down to two categories, Lego or Minecraft.
